APRIL 30, 2017

     Defined by the bible, GOD has said nothing. Commenting on legislation introduced by congressional Democrats to ban conversion therapy -- even for homoseuxals who want the treatment -- Reverend Franklin Graham said all persons are born with a fallen, sinful nature and that God defines homosexual behavior as a "sin," an "abomination to Him." The one "conversion therapy" that works for all sin, said Graham, is to ask "Jesus Christ to come into our hearts."

     This week, Democrats introduced the "Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act of 2017," which would allow the Federal Trade Commission to classify conversion therapy as fraudulent. House Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said, "LGBTQ people were born perfect; there is nothing to treat them for." Conversion therapy, or reparative therapy is a psychotherapeutic treatment that can reduce unwanted same-sex attraction in an individual and help him (or her) affirm their heterosexuality. It is a voluntary treatment.  In an April 28 post on Facebook, Franklin Graham wrote, "Now Democrats are proposing a bill to ban conversion therapy in the United States, saying that LGBTQ people were born perfect."
